Watches: Your Personality, Not Just an Accessory

No matter how much we deny and try to break the stereotype, a book is always judged by its cover first, before it is appreciated for its profoundness. This establishes my initial nub that your first look makes a big difference, in determining the approach of the person you will be interacting with. While well-groomed appearance, occasion-apt dress sense and a firm hand-shake is the regular code of conduct, there are certain things that strike the spectator more than other things. This brings me to my second idea, which I bring up with a question—Do you recall the famous saying that ‘a man is judged by his shoes (even a woman!)’?  Well, let me tell you that it is old-school. Watches are the new shoes!

When it comes to visual indicators that cement one’s novel personality, watches top the list today. A British friend once mentioned—In Europe, a person who doesn’t wear a watch is not taken seriously in business; and guess what, it is not just Europe. The theory proves to be true across borders and is not limited to the business world alone. Each one of us has a diverse voice, which should be acknowledged and respected. A watch is a strong visual sign that gives you a smart and serious aura, well-appreciated as a social etiquette.

The things that make your watch so noticeable, also bestow on it a major responsibility to showcase your personality suitably; a bad sign is more fatal than no sign. Get to know about the trending watch bands and pick the one that defines you the best. You can easily find these varieties in an online store. Browse through our list below:

Classic Leather Band

Link Band

Fancy bracelet straps, providing a range of options in the material they are made of—gold, titanium, stainless steel, and wood, to mention few of the eminent ones.

Zulu Band

Rugged nylon/leather straps with bulky stainless steel detailing. Suits best for a casual and relatively rough look.

Nato Band

For a casual yet simple and mellow look. These bands are made of nylon, which is durable and water-resistant. Available in a wide range of designs.

Women Believe In a ‘Knight in Shining Armour’, They Call It Lipstick

Give a woman some food and she’ll love you for a day, give her a lipstick and she’ll love you for all her life! A woman knows that her man is a keeper if he notices the difference between her ‘Russian Red’ and her ‘Ruby Woo’ lip colour.

Make up is truly a girl’s best friend and the origins of this have been traced back to the Egyptian, Harappan and Indus Valley civilizations, where men and women both were found to be wearing colour on their eyes, lips and even brows. Visibly, the women folk happen to take it more seriously!

In our society today, we all face a number of challenges, obstacles, gender issues and social stereotypes. All of these social stereotypes come with certain stigmas attached to them—the perfect hair, the well-toned body, and most obviously the flawless face. Media has formed a very superficial and unrealistic image of women, and it is because of this façade that a woman is unable to indulge into her favourite pizza, always worried about the calorie count and blemishes. Sadly, we don’t strive to be real, we strive to be perfect. It’s for such times that make-up comes to the rescue! Make-up brands sell products but what women pick and buy is their hope; the hope of not being judged, the hope of being able to look pretty enough, the hope of being able to grab as many eye-balls as they can, the hope of being able to feel confident, bold and powerful.

However, one knows a woman is not doing justice if she doesn’t own a lipstick shade for every outfit in her closet! So much makeup to choose from and yet we have women obsessing over their perfectly desired lip colour. There’s so much more to a lipstick than just adding that peck of colour to your face. One can go from being bold to playing it nude with an array of colours to choose from. A dull, mundane outfit can be transformed magically with a bold lip colour. A young college girl in her ripped baggy jeans and a crop top with a suitable lip colour always slays through it all.

Lipsticks makes every outfit look better than it actually is! It makes one feel bolder, more confident and enhances one’s features. It isn’t for nothing that a lipstick is by far every woman’s best friend and sticks loyally following her in every handbag, every place and every party. Indeed, the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach and the way to a woman’s heart is through the appreciation for the colour she wears on her lips.
